    I'm using the stock text messaging app. And there have been several times where I'm in a group message and I'm getting messages 30 later than everyone else

    Have you tried a 3rd party messaging app? In all honesty, the stock one SUCKS. Which carrier are you with?

    I use Google Messenger and have this all the time. It's anything that has to do w/ MMS actually. If I am on WiFi, it will not work until I am on mobile data for some stupid reason.

    Do people w/ these third party apps have this issue or can they be downloaded automatically while on WiFi? I figured this was a Samsung limitation b/c while on my Moto X, this problem never occurred and I would get my group texts far faster than my GF who has a S3.

    That is what drove me away from the Google related apps. I HATE group messages, but I want to receive them in a timely manner. I ended on on Verizon Messages

    Recommend to switch to a different messenger. The stock one is laggy when it comes to MMS and etc. Try out chompSMS or Textra.

    Try out Verizon messages. It's a really cool app and handles group messaging very well!

    Not gonna lie, I just switched from Google Messenger to this.... and I like it!!! Good job, Verizon!! Looks good, highly customizable, supposedly handles group messages well... like, I'm shocked that bloat apps are something I will use as my default.

    For real people, check this out.

    The funny this is that this isn't one of their "bloat" apps! If one of their apps should come installed on your phone it should be this one!

    Well crap, I just got excited over nothing lol... but really, thanks for the heads up! While I enjoyed the clean look of Google Messenger, I didn't like how uncustomizable it was.

    Sidebar question. I only use the stock messaging app because I can use the quick reply feature on my Gear watch. Does any of the other messaging apps allow you to do that on the Gear?

    Has anyone figured out how to fix this issue? I'm having the same problem on my HTC One M8 on T-Mobile. I've used the stock messaging app, Google Hangouts and Google Messenger and I will receive group MMS 20-30 minutes after everyone else receives them.

    Group messages are mms and require mobile data.

    I have the same issue on my verizon Note 4. I get delays with all messaging apps. I'm about to try the Verizon app.. If it works with no delays, then I will blame verizon. Probably doing it on purpose so that everyone uses their app. It wouldn't surprise me.

    This is driving me insane on my LG G4. A lot of my group messages get sent hours after I send them (show as "sending" for hours in the stock messaging app), and I also get delays receiving them.
    I tried the LG messaging app, Google's, and Textra. All 3 had the same issues.
    Trying Verizon messenger now to see if it helps.

    My wife recently had a problem with her Note 4 not turning data on and off for MMS when on wifi. I suspect there could be multiple causes for this, but I was able to get this corrected for her by going to apps>all in the settings menu and clearing the caches for the Messages and MmsService apps and force stopping them. I also cleared data for the Messages app.

    To fix this, I opened my Messaging App then go to "Settings", Scroll down to "Group Conversations:, uncheck box that says "Use MMS to start group conversations".....it should work. It works for me.
